Happy Birthday Claire Bear

Poor little thing, no one feeds her.... (not an exaggeration, she POLISHED the whole cake right off. Gone. Finito.)

What a cute baby! (Side Note: Can someone get that tired looking mom an espresso, or makeup, or SOMETHING???)

Happy Birthday sweet girl.

What happens with G-pop, stays with G-pop

Ummm Dad? An explanation please.....

All you need is Love.....

Look at her little finger pointing for more...

Pressly being so careful..

Thomas being very particular with his cookie adding just the right amount of frosting...

"like this Mom, let me sketch out the design for you...."

Soph eating a big sugary cookie, isn't that what it's about???

Very pleased with himself!

Working diligently

Most of the kiddies...

Yes Mom, Can I help you??

Grandma B's Visit

During the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season I received a card from my grandmother which she had inscripted on the inside " I hope to see all (or some) of you on January 14 at the airport at suchandsuchatime"...in other words she was coming! I had little laugh about the way she was checking whether we were around or not. Only Grandma B would write a letter to check instead of a phone call, email, or through my mom. Gotta love it.

We had such a nice time drinking coffee every morning in our jammies, folding and refolding the kids drawers (read:she did it), organizing junk (again: all her and she LOVES it and ASKS), and just living in my life for a few days...

Here are a few pictures from her visit.

Every morning she would make Emme and Levi their own coffee milk. (mostly milk with just a titch of coffee to color the milk). They were in heaven.

Emme wearing an Austrian dirndl that was her great Aunt Dorothy's when she was a little girl. I love the sentiment.

Emme, Gram and I also went to a Tea House for a luncheon and to sip some tea like "real ladies." Em told me more than once to get my elbows off the table too. Yipes.

Claire was being a helper here. Grandma would fold something and put it away, while Claire would promptly rip it out of the dresser..so proud of herself. Turkey.
Thanks for the wonderful visit Gram. I loved every minute of it. Come and visit again soon. Like next month. Levi's drawers are already a mess. Love you.

miss abigail

I've been fortunate enough to be taking some pictures of family and friends this past fall/winter. Here are a couple of my faves that I took of our friends little girl Abby this past weekend. I hope you like them Becky! I'll send you a CD of the finished ones.
